Currently using Adiquity and for 1/1 - 1/7 I am seeing 68% fill rate, 2.18 CTR and .10 ecpm. Compared to 12/1-12/7 last month which was 70.1% fill rate, 3.20 ctr and .25 ecpm. Might try Smaato or another RTB/mediation network
I use Leadbolt for one app, and Unity Ads for both. (Only 2 apps). Daily traffic is probably 35-50k impressions if I add both together. I am about to switch to AerServ for mediation so I’ll see how that works out!
At Airpush, we have plenty of advertisers available and feed partners that we work with. Demand changes throughout the year, and is typically softer in Q1, but our network eCPM is averaging a solid $1 - $1.50+.
I wonder where this problem with CPI based networks comes from. Since sometime in December Chartboosts ecpm also dropped from $4 to $0.5 from one day to another. Ad installs were suddenly extremely low. Usually we had one install every 500 impressions, then it increased to about 4000 impressions needed for an install.
25.000 impressions per day, $0.5 ecpm, $12.50 earned. I reactivated it one time in January again when we had 50.000 impressions a day, still only $0.6 ecpm. In Chartboost I can see how often a specific ad (for example clash of kings) got displayed to a user and how often it got installed + how much we earned. The ads displayed didn’t change at all. Users just stopped to download it. For the months before we always had a good ecpm, now it’s just dead.
I don’t know how chartboost account managers are but some AD networks you can discuss which ADs are not performing and which ones are. Obviously clash of clans is not performing maybe ask him is there newer game advertisers. After a month or 2 people get immune to seeing the same AD over and over again in different apps. Hopefully account manager can resolve your issue.
I know what you mean, but this happened from one day to another at the same time Admob had this drop in revenue in December. Usually this is a slowly drop that happens over months when people get sick seeing the same ads. I contacted Chartboost and this guy there gave me such an incompetent answer, competely away from the topic that I didn’t even wanted to continue this conversation.
